A Decade of Data Center Growth Set to Take Centre Stage at 10th Annual Finance and Investment Forum in London

London 18 August 2016 - The European market for data centre services has risen 200% since the first Finance and Investment Forum in 2007. As global cloud and datacentre markets continue to bloom the sector is set to be discussed in detail at the 10th annual event in London.  

“This has been a period of unpreceded growth for the industry” says Steve Wallage Managing director of BroadGroup Consulting. “The stock price of a leading player Equinix is up 500% in the last decade, illustrating how transformative this period has been” continues Wallage.

FIF London which will take place on January 26rd 2017 in the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square will discuss the past, present and future of the industry. A prestige dinner will also be hosted on the evening of the conference with a special guest speaker.

This is the only European event dedicated to investment in the data centre/co-location, hosting and IaaS sector. In the decade since the inaugural event in 2007 FIF London has grown to be the defining deal making forum within the space with senior attendees from CFOs and CEOs from the sector, to leading investors and advisors.

This highly regarded event will showcase speakers from Africa, Asia and the US along with pitches from innovative start-ups, executive 1-1 meetings and analyst insight. With private equity firms, investment funds, banks and legal counsel all in attendance FIF London 2017 is set to take the temperature of the UK and global market while offering insights on future opportunities.

Providing rare exposure to key investors and influencers, FIF London provides high level analysis of the market for IT infrastructure assets and unparalleled networking among the representatives attending. Mr Wallage also remarked ‘This will be interesting in light of the current market and the number of exciting start-ups set to attend and how the industry can continue to propagate itself.”

Attendees will focus on existing investments in the data centre and cloud space, new players seeking investment, new investment and acquisition opportunities, companies seeking disposal of assets, brokerage opportunities, IPOs, and professional service tendering.

Top speakers and insiders will explore this exciting time for expansion. The forum aims to sustain its reputation for deep content and market intelligence, rare and unique access between investors and businesses seeking investment, and creating an annual marketplace for all players engaged in the multi-billion dollar datacentre and cloud growth sector.
